WG Designer, Amy Tsuruta, is doing a blog hop this month about all things coffee. Her project is a card made from Whisker Graphics products – yay! She uses our super popular white on Brown Kraft Chevron Middy Bag as her “envelope.” A Pink Colored Tag tied up with Solid Black Divine Twine frames her sentiment. We just love the simple contrasting colors!

Star Gazing Party!

April 21st, 2015 § 0 comments § permalink

As a kid, WG Designer, Dawn Smith, was fascinated with Greek mythology and origin fables. Her favorites were stories about people and animals who became constellations. Stars and star-gazing are a popular party motif and, as such, they inspired her to create constellation sewing card printables for a stellar party garland. She threaded the cards with Divine Twine — Solid Navy on the white card stock and Solid Yellow twine on the midnight blue.

Strung with Solid Bright White twine, this garland would be a fun class or party project for budding astronomers and star gazers alike. What a creative way to explore the night sky and learn about the constellations!

Bitty Bag of Love

January 28th, 2015 § 2 comments § permalink

Guest Designer, Vanessa Spencer, is back this month with a bitty bag o’ love! She chooses our very popular, Gold Horizontal Stripe Middy as her base then free-hand paints her sentiment with black acrylic paint. (If you’re not confident with your paint brush cursive, you could lightly write in pencil and trace over it. We won’t tell!) Fill each bag with the treat of your choice then sew the top shut using a straight stitch and black thread. Or, hand stitch using a wide eyed needle and Solid Black Divine Twine. For a pop of color, tie each package with Solid Pink Divine Twine. Although perfect for Valentine’s Day, these would also work nicely as bridal shower or wedding favors, too!
